Well…here we are again…
New update …ranking system down the toilet
I seriously went from onyx 3 to silver 1 and now can’t leave silver 1 once again.
With matchmaking , All the players I’m playing are no no where near silver 1 skill level (I’ve been playing this game 10 years, I should know)
I’m once again stuck in silver 1 and can’t progress
Get a Win and dominate gain +60 points
Lose a game and still do excellent lose -576 points
Back to the SOS (same old S#%*)
Ah geeze seen so many of threads and one point in my head I’m just over it. Who cares about some rank next to your name. If you made it to onyx guess what? You’re pretty good at the game dude. Yeah, it’s messed up, def should be noted…but at the same time don’t get worked up about it or anything.
I wish the ranking system was miles better than the one we have with all types of placing and stats. I used to play ranked every match, but I stopped cuz I realized I enjoy quick play more.
In Gears 4–I played ranked for the skins, thought they looked nice.
In Gears 5–I never played ranked.
I don’t understand why anyone would care, “I’m a Diamond,” a badge doesn’t delegate your place in the game or your skill. I guess skill-based matchmaking would be good for balancing–but in my experience it leads to what amounts to a 2v5 due to the “balancing” being not that balanced.
to play devils advocate, a ranking system that works properly is actually important in a competitive game because any game that has players not on equal footing…stinks. I don’t necessarily care about rank in the sense that I want to climb the leaderboard (because I don’t want that) but like most of us here I was stuck in silver until they fixed it, at which point I was anywhere from Onyx 2 to Gold 3. And that’s where I was in Gears 4 as well. So…I’m better than a silver player. And if I’m in a game with a bunch of true silvers that’s not fun for me. But since the system was SOOO broken before, you’re getting players who I swear were diamonds who were also stuck in silver, and that sucks for everybody too. It got way better once they adjusted it in OP2. So if we’re all going to do this nonsense where we are stuck in silver forever again, well I’m not looking forward to that.
If your in silver it doesn’t put you up against a team of silvers, it goes off overall team ranking to equal it out. Unfortunately at the start of a season tho everyone’s on a level playing field so your more likely to run into masters straight away.
Personally the ranked system is what keeps me playing as messed up as it is. Each to their own I guess. Still can’t seem to pull myself away from this damn game as many times as its F’d me over.
